I can't be the only one who's noticed this and I'm sure it's been discussed before, but does anyone happen to know the hot dog guy at the Cell? I've seen and of course heard him at games I've been too and he's the only vendor that I've actually been able to hear during a broadcast. I have to think he's got some sort of super vocal chords because I've never come across anyone else who's voice can project so well from such a long distance.

Does he work Cubs games as well? I think I've heard him before when I've been to Wrigley.

Yeah my old roommate does a spot on impression of him. He yells it whenever we are at games and gets a laugh every time. The vender is quite obnoxious but hey if it helps him sell hot dogs all power to him.

YES!!!! He yells so loud that it's distracting when I'm listening to the game on the radio.

c'mon....don't talk about Antonio that way!! He does a lot for this city, ICE CREAM!! at Bulls games, and the occasional LEMON CHILL!! at the ballpark as well

I don't know what annoys me more... the way he yells "HOT DOGS!!!" so loud that it comes through on my radio and interrupts my concentration on the game, or the way he screams, "ICE CREAM!!!"

He's a dead ringer for Scottie, too!

This person isn't a vendor, but has anyone seen, or rather heard, the Split the Pot Raffle Ticket chick?! You know the one I'm talking about..., "Over fouuuuuur thouuuuusand dollars... went to yesterDAY's winner." I don't care where in the ballpark I'm sitting, this chick always manages to be selling raffle tickets were I am. I've even seen her at SoxFest!

I am convinced that the 83 pound cotton candy guy (who is skinnier than the pole he carries) is Chris Sales grandfather.

Some of these folks have real problems. The Hot Dog guy is one of them. There's also the beer vendor who is absolutely lit at every game. You guys know the one. Slurs his words ALL the time...must drink like a fish. The singing vendor who works the first base side is okay for the first two times you see his act...after that, I want him to just STOP. Half of them are frustrated actors, and there is a good reason they are frustrated. My guy Lee, who works the 3b side mostly is what I like...understated, gets his beer sold and gets the hell out of my way while I'm trying to watch the game. All vendors should be like that.

The hot dog man is inanely loud. I was at a game with probably 30,000 in attendance, I was sitting behind the Sox dugout and between plays I heard him from behind the visitors' dugout. Not only does he yell, he also slams the metal lid of his hot dog container REALLY loudly. It is always funny when he walks down an aisle and catches someone off guard, slamming the thing near their head and causing them to go deaf for several minutes.

I remember back at old Comiskey Park there was an older guy who sold hot dogs in the left field stands. What drove most people crazy about this guy is he would always walk right in front of everyone (especially those sitting in the front row) when selling his hot dogs.

During the Veeck Years, we would always sit in the front row of the Right Field UD. There was a 500 year old man (yes, he was that old) who sold ice cream in the cups with the wooden spoons who would walk across the row getting in our way every game during the cold months. I usually bought an ice cream from him because I felt sorry that he had to lug all that ice cream around at his age. He was a short, stooped over man.....

You need Buehrle's contract to afford the gas for either of those trucks.
I cannot believe that Ford sells enough of those to make much money.

The caption is wrong. It's an F-650 because of the chassis. You can take the bed off of the back and put a dump on it. Buehrle's was custom built to have a bed like an F-350.

If it was a true F-350, the chassis is much smaller.

They sell quite a few actually, because most are converted into being tow trucks, boom lifts, or dump trucks. You buy an F-650 chassis, and then it's sent off to whatever company you need to customize it.

There's actually an F-750 as well.

Talk about someone ill suited for her job! She is the world's quietest vendor. My favorite beer vendor is Roger, the guy who looks like he belongs at a Grateful Dead concert circa 1970. Great guy.

There was a concessionaire (sp?) at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis that used to sell shaved ice. He was a pretty disheveled character, and used to scare the hell out of people as he screamed "shaved ice!"

And not that bright either. A game this summer she was holding her sign that said last nights winner won $4,900 and kept yelling that last nights winner won "Over fiiiiiiiiiiiiive thouuuuusand dollars" Stay in school kids! :cool:

Does he work Cubs games as well? I think I've heard him before when I've been to Wrigley.

I think a lot of the vendors do since the teams are almost always not at home the same day; it effectively doubles the days they can work. It does cause some issues I'm sure on the 1 or 2 sereies a year both teams are in town, at different parks.

Unless they do things differently these days, you are correct. Back in the late 50s-early '70s, my mother and aunts used to work not only Sox and Cubs games, but also at the various racetracks.

Maybe it's because I'm sick as a dog with a terrible cold, exhausted and punchy cos I was up till 3:30am blowing my noise non-stop (and then up for work @ 6:30), but you guys have me laughing my butt off with your comments!!

Just to be sure, are you guys talking about the guy who yells, "Hey Hot Dog, Polish!" like he could care less? I used to hear all the time last year when watching the games on TV. Every time he said it I would repeat it, just cos he sounded so funny! Haven't heard him so much this year....

Was hoping to find when attending Nancy Faust Day, which I have tix for, but probably can't afford to make the trek all the way up from NC. Nice seats behind the plate too. Look for 'em on Stubhub soon.....bummer!

I have a hilarious story about The Hot Dog Guy that I might have shared on here before, but I might as well again, since it's the subject of this thread. One time, The Hot Dog Guy came down our aisle, and my dad audibly joked, "How'd you like to live with that guy?: 'HEY HONEY CAN I GET SOME COFFEE?'" He yelled the last part pretty loud, and The Hot Dog Guy must have heard him, because he came back down a few steps and yelled "HOT DOGS!" about 12 inches from my dad's ear.
